Burp a baby is a tough, yet, vital part of feeding as it helps to get rid of some of the air that babies tend to swallow when drinking milk.
Thankfully, a mum has shared a hack that she says “works 99.9 per cent of the time,” and it’s so simple.
Tay Becker explains how to do “the wiggle butt,” on TikTok, in a clip that has been viewed more than 2.8 million times.
“I’m going to show you my trick for getting a good burp out of your baby,” Tay says.
“It looks ridiculous, but it works AWESOME!”
She then demonstrates how to hold your baby – with one hand supporting their head and upper back and the other holding them tightly against our shoulder.
“Holding their head, shift their legs back and forth,” she explains, warning, “This is a GENTLE motion. Do not force their legs to shift or move!”
You then hear the baby burp and Tay says: “There it is!”
“I didn’t come up with this,” she says.
“I found it on YouTube from a chiropractor when Knox was a newborn and we had a hard time getting him to burp. In our family, we call it the wiggle butt and it works like 99.9 per cent of the time.”
Since being posted, the video has racked up more than 530,000 likes and 2,200 comments from grateful parents.
One person said: “I just tried this cause I was already holding my son and he burped super loud.”
Another person wrote: “One of my nurses taught me this after having my daughter but she called it the hula.”
“Omg I am totally trying this… our newborn won’t burp and all our other kids did just fine, we have been stumped!” commented a third.
Whilst a fourth revealed: “Was feeding my daughter while watching this and it works SO well!”
